Wow

Just out: MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME IS AT THE HIGHEST POINT EVER, EVER, EVER! How about saying it this way, IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY! Also, MORE PEOPLE WORKING TODAY IN THE USA THAN AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY! Tough numbers for the Radical Left Democrats to beat! Impeach the Pres.

Everything we are doing in Syria is a hand-over to the Russians.

Everything Trump does is a hand-over to the Russians. This is not political rhetoric or hyperbole. Trump foreign policy has helped and is helping Russia far far more than it is helping the US. That's just fact.

Fiona Hill Confirms The Quid Pro Quo

🚨Fiona Hill describes this scene:

In a White House meeting, Sondland tells Ukrainians they will get a Trump meeting if they open the investigations Trump wants. Then, Sondland follows the Ukrainians out of the meeting to privately make clear he's talking about Hunter Biden.

Trump Thinks Bolton Is Behind Ukraine Leaks

Daily Beast: “In the course of casual conversations with advisers and friends, President Trump has privately raised suspicions that a spiteful John Bolton, his notoriously hawkish former national security adviser, could be one of the sources behind the flood of leaks against him… At one point, Trump guessed that Bolton was behind one of the anonymous accounts that listed the former national security adviser as one of the top officials most disturbed by the Ukraine-related efforts of Trump and Rudy Giuliani, the president’s personal attorney who remains at the center of activities that spurred the impeachment inquiry.”

“The former national security adviser—who departed the administration last month on awful, mutually bitter terms—is working on a book about his time serving Trump, and has ‘a lot to dish,’ one knowledgeable source noted. “

Bolton & Giuliani comparing each other to escalating series of weapons is unexpected but xlnt turn

.@RudyGiuliani on Bolton calling him a “hand grenade.” RG: “I’m very disappointed that his bitterness drives him to attack a friend falsely...It’s really ironic that John Bolton is calling anyone else a hand grenade. When John is described by many as an atomic bomb . “

The US that has switched sides. We are now an active part of the Axis of Evil.

..................

...........I look at what is going on in Syria today and I see a US that has switched sides. We are now an active part of the Axis of Evil. We are aligned with dictators and murderers and thieves and enemies of our own country.

We have a president who defends those who attack us–like Russia–and goes further, he serves them. He defends murderers like Mohammed bin Salman in Saudi Arabia and sends him troops–or rents our military out to the highest bidder.

He talks of love letters with brutal autocrats like Kim Jong Un. He embraces neo-fascists from Bolsonaro to Duterte. He joins with men like Putin in attacks on our Intelligence Community and our FBI. He and those close to him are so corrupt that the vast army of people in the civil service, the Foreign Service, and others who have devoted their lives to serving our country feel compelled to put their careers at risk to help protect us from our own leaders.

Trump and Pence and Pompeo and Barr and McConnell and McCarthy and Graham and Rubio and the rest piously speak of their devotion to the Bible and God and then spend each and every day revealing that they have a Bible-shaped hole in their characters.

***This is important bc Eisenberg is the guy who moved the Trump transcript to the TS server

DOJ decision not to investigate after whistleblower complaint referred more alarming

NEW: Fiona Hill told House impeachment investigators that John Bolton ordered her to notify a WH lawyer that Giuliani was working with Mick Mulvaney on a rogue operation with legal implications

(Also was key behind Section 702 stuff just ruled a 4A violation.)

Hill said Bolton instructed her to talk to NSC lawyer John Eisenberg. A spox for Bolton didn’t immediately respond to request for comment

so nsc lawyer john eisenberg knew everything when cia general counsel brought him whistleblower notification, before complaint


And Eisenberg has very quietly been the key person in this cover-up (and a key player in the cover-up of Russia). He's the guy who decided to place the transcript onto the TS server to hide the crimes.

Also, Hill focused attention on Mulvaney. I'll get into why that's so important. But it's the detail that will lead Republicans to vote to convict.

...Sondland probably wishes he testified when he was supposed to last week. now committees will know

'Hill told lawmakers that she confronted Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador to the European Union, about Giuliani’s activities which, she testified, were not coordinated with the officials responsible for carrying out U.S. foreign policy'
